Definitely demolished in the 1990's. I visited it once, and at that time it was intact although had obviously been "remodelled"  by recent residents. It was set against the hillside, but having squeezed between the back wall and the hillside I was surprised to find the wall a relatively flimsy construction. Some of the reinforcing bars were exposed, and the concrete poorly compacted, almost as though the constructors were running low on concrete.
